Horsechestnut / Standardized Extract - 300mg
Horsechestnut is the third most popular single herbal product sold in Germany, and its popularity in the U.S. is on the rise. The active ingredients in horse chestnut are in a group of compounds known as saponins, of which aescin is the most potent. Research shows that aescin reduces swelling and inflammation in our veins by promoting the elasticity and strength of the veins, and by sealing leaky capillaries. Horsechestnut is especially beneficial to the veins in our legs and our rectal area. Athletes may also benefit from horsechestnut for sprains, bruises and other athletic injuries that occur.
Horsechestnut is a European standardized extract containing 60 mg of the naturally occurring active compound aescin. Like all European herbal extracts, the extraction of our horsechestnut extract is regulated to the same high standards as over-the-counter drugs.
Horsechestnut seed extract is widely used in Europe to support healthy vein structure and function, both essential for normal, healthy circulation. Horsechestnut’s active agents include aescin and proanthocyanidin A2, with most of the biological
effects being mediated by aescin. Aescin has been shown to support the normal, healthy structure and function of venous capillaries. This in turn provides support for normal venous circulation and healthy blood flow to the heart and other organs. Aescin appears to produce effects through a wide range of mechanisms including the synthesis of endothelial nitric oxide synthesis by making endothelial cells more permeable to calcium ions.
For chronic venous insufficiency, Horsechestnut may be a useful dietary supplement for those who wish to support a healthy structure and function of venous capillaries.
No adverse effects have been reported.
